The 525-hour private pilot was taxiing the tailwheel-equipped vintage airplane after landing when a gust of wind lifted the right wing and "cartwheeled" the single-engine airplane into a fence. The airplane came to rest in the inverted position and there was no post accident fire. The pilot was able to egress the airplane unassisted. No mechanical anomalies were reported with the flight controls. The pilot reported having accumulated 102 hours in the same make and model. Several minutes before the accident, the automated weather observing system located 6 nautical miles northeast from the site of the accident reported, wind from 140 degrees varying to 200 degrees at 19 knots gusting to 23 knots.
